Black Twitter Skewers Buzzfeed Over “Questions For Black People” Video
Buzzfeed is under fire for publishing this video titled “27 Questions Black People Have for Black People.”
The video features – yep, you guessed it – Black people making sweeping generalizations about their own community and offering disparaging commentary about that community. “Why are we likely to engage in a new dance trend than we are to get involved in politics or opening a business?” one woman asks.
The video comes across contrived, and unfortunately, the people in it, insanely ignorant to those in their own community. Black Twitter was not here for the nonsense, blasting Buzzfeed and the Black folks in the video.
Here’s a question black people have for black people: how much did BuzzFeed pay y’all to Uncle Tom us like that? (probably nothing tbh)

I need a Buzzfeed video where whites ask other whites why their ancestors invaded the world for spices and still don’t use em.
